TEREBINTH FACTS AND BENEFITS

The resin of the Pinus pinter tree is used terebinth oil  (same species from which we get Maritime Pine.

This essential oil is fantastic for treating the flu and other respiratory disorders. Sea Pine essential oil is ideal for a diffuser because it is an expectorant. Itis also drying, so avoid using it early in the course of a respiratory disease when the mucus isthick and the cough is painful. This is the best therapy when there is an excess of mucus. This increases its analgesic impact while also offering sedative and anti anxiety properties.

Maritime pine has also been demonstrated to aid in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and pain.

This oil in particular can be percieved as masculine essential scent as well as a femenine balancing scent.  When using Terebinth Essential Oil for men, if gives that extra brain power to deal with any tasks or uprising situation.   The video by Retromass conveyed that message very well, and I was very surprised to find this video online:  

After viewing this cool video I also found another video about Terebinth Essential Oil for Women.  It is fantastic as far as having to explain the use of the of the oil and the balacing effect it has for women: 

More about the Valuable Terebinth

Pistacia terebinthus is a species of deciduous tree belonging to the Pistacia and Sumac families (Anacardiaceae).The plant is indigenous to the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean area, ranging from western Morocco and Portugal to Greece and western and southeastern Turkey. Pistacia palaestina, which grows on the eastern beaches of the Mediterranean Sea (in Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and the Palestinian territories), was once considered a different species, but it is now considered a synonym of Pistacia terebinthus. Tourist tree, Cyprus turpentine, Cyprus Turpentine, Terebinth, Turpentine tree, Cyprus turpentine tree, Terebinth tree, Eastern Turpentine Tree, and Terebinth pistachio are some of the frequent names for the plant. Flavonoids, phenolics, triterpenoids, and essential oils are found in terebinth extract. Terebinth is used to make turpentine and bread, and its shoots are eaten as a vegetable. Most individuals utilise Terebinth Herbal Oil. Terebinth contains both tannins and a resinous component. In addition to being used to treat streptococcal infections and cancer, it is antispasmodic, expectorant, antiseptic, and cytostatic. The plant is gathered from the wild  for mostly local usage as a food, medicinal, and material source. It was once grown for its resin, and it is now commonly used as a rootstock for the cultivated pistachio nut.

Plant Knowledge

Terebinth is a small deciduous tree or large shrub that typically grows between 2 and 6 metres in height, with some examples surpassing 12 metres. The plant thrives in dry, open woods, scrub, dry rock slopes, hillside vegetation, pine forests, and maquis vegetation. Alkaline, sandy-to-stony soil is suitable for cultivating this plant. Aging causes the greyish or brown bark to flake.

Leaves

The rectangular leaf is brilliant green, leathery, and pinnate, with sessile, limp, glabrous leaflets that culminate in a long tip. Each leaf includes 4-6 pairs of leaflets, as well as a non-paired tiny leaflet near the  leaf’s tip. The upper side of the leaflet is not glossy, and the leaflet margin is whole. The  leaf’s axis is cylindrical and without a margin. The arrangement of the leaves is random. The tree may be identified in the winter by its enormous, pilose buds. The carob tree’s leaves are larger and rounder than mastic tree foliage.

Flowers

Between the months of March and April, terebinths display their beautiful blossoms.

The panicle inflorescence is composed of several racemes that hold a few blooms each.

There are two to five sepals on a female flower, but there is no corolla.Both the stigma and the pistil are rather small in length.  The ovary is regarded as the more important organ.

Male flowers, which do not have a corolla, have a sepal that has 3-5 lobes instead. They include anywhere from three to seven stamens with short filaments.The crimson colour of the stigmas and stamens contribute to the overall reddish tint of the inflorescence.

Fruit

After a successful bloom, a solitary, round drupe with a diameter of around 5 mm and a green pulp develops. Over time, it transforms from a vibrant red to a deep purple blue. Red berries can’t produce any babies. The fruit is safe for human consumption. Birds distribute their seeds. They emerge in big bunches and ripen to a striking pink colour.

Cough,eczema, asthma, diarrhoea, ulcers, and arthritis are just some of the many conditions that have been traditionally treated with terebinth fruits. They show up in other baked goods,

as bread additives,  and in the production of various foods like frying oil.

Fruits are also highly valued for their use as a raw material in the manufacture of bttm and turpentine soap, as well as for the creation of a wide variety of flavours and spices.Terebinth coffee, made from roasted terebinth fruits, is renowned for its vibrant hue and fragrant scent.It is common practise in Turkey to add milk to this coffee, making it a popular traditional coffee.
